RoadMetrics, a startup with offices in Bengaluru, has been named the winner of the Mobility AI Grand Challenge by the Telangana AI Mission (T-AIM). The goal of the challenge, which was announced in August in collaboration with Capgemini, is to promote innovation for the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) utilising AI (AI). According to T-AIM, the winner will receive mentoring assistance and up to 20 lakh towards the execution of a prototype project.
The task at hand was to find cutting-edge AI methods for spotting and categorising potholes in the city. Although nearly 100 applications were submitted, 15 startups were given the chance to develop a Proof of Concept for the competition that was accessible to entrepreneurs around the nation. An expert jury made up of representatives from the GHMC, business, and academia heard from three companies about their solutions.
On its website, RoadMetrics claimed to have offices in Bengaluru and London as well as an enterprise-grade application. The business claimed that "our patented system employs AI to extract road conditions and street assets." Among its investors are T-Hub and Meity Startup Hub.
Industries and IT Secretary Jayesh Ranjan praised the T-AIM initiative and stated in the press release that "as AI advances and becomes more sophisticated, it has the potential to offer innovative solutions to the problems faced by local municipalities... congratulations to the winning startup for presenting a novel AI-based solution to GHMC." Anurag Pratap, VP and CSR Leader at Capgemini India, noted that the Mobility AI Grand Challenge had inspired several creative ideas from companies.
